CNC based laser micro machining technology on polymers

Type:  Product
IPR Status:  Patent
Secured In:  India
Application/uses: 

Laser micro patterning, hydrophobic patterned surface generation, fabrication of micro channels and skill development at educational institutions related to CNC machining.

Salient Technical Competing Features: 

A CNC laser engraver which is indigenous in terms of its controller and graphical user interfaces and can conduct laser micro machining with a maximum motion resolution of 1.25 microns, maximum error of 8 microns and repeatability of 10 microns. The laser micro machining is conducted using UV diode laser/ IR diode laser with a maximum laser power of 10 W and minimum spot diameter of 30 microns. The machine can engrave primarily on polymers for micro scale pattern generation using dexterous CNC codes.

Status of Commercialization:  Technology has been transferred to one of the Indian Industry on non-exclusive basis and it is under production & commercialization
Major Raw Materials To Be Utilized :  Linear translation stages, indigenous developed CNC controller card, indigenous laser driver, laser head, mild steel for fabrication of machine chassis, honeycomb breadboard.
Major Equipments:  Printed circuit board fabrication facility for controller card printing (can be printed from GERBER included in technology package), CNC machine for fabrication of machine chassis.
Techno Economic:  The technology has high commercial value since it is indigenous in terms of controller and software where debugging, manufacturing and warranty aspects are easier than commercially available machines in market.
Content Details: 

The developed CNC machine has approximately 5 times lesser cost than similar commercially available machines in market.

Level/Scale of Development:  Prototype development is complete and is tested in laboratory for ~500 hours. Furthermore the prototype is also tested by third parties during skill development programs.
